Dynamic Multilateral Markets AgEcon
Polanski, Arnold; Lazarova, Emiliya A..
We study dynamic multilateral markets, in which players’ payoffs result from coalitional bargaining. In this setting, we establish payoff uniqueness of the stationary equilibria when players exhibit some degree of impatience. We focus on market games with different player types, and derive under mild conditions an explicit formula for each type’s equilibrium payoff as market frictions vanish. The limit payoff of a type depends in an intuitive way on the supply and the demand for this type in the market, adjusted by the type-specific bargaining power. Our framework may be viewed as an alternative to the Walrasian price-setting mechanism. When we apply this methodology to the analysis of labor markets, we can determine endogenously the equilibrium firm size...

Firms’ International Status and Heterogeneity in Performance: Evidence From Italy AgEcon
Casaburi, Lorenzo; Gattai, Valeria; Minerva, G. Alfredo.
This paper revisits the empirical evidence about the link between firms’ performance and their international status, based on a large sample of Italian enterprises. To this purpose, we merged two waves of the Capitalia survey (1998-2000, and 2001-2003) retrieving firm level data for roughly 7,000 units. Three results stand out from our empirical exercise. First, firms that engage in the foreign production of final goods, in addition to export activities, are more productive than firms that only export abroad. Second, firms that engage in final goods off-shoring are more productive than firms that engage in inputs off-shoring. Third, in terms of the productivity dynamics over the period 1998-2003, exporters’ performance in Italy was not any better than the...

Geographic Distribution of Renewable Energy Sector Industries: An Analysis Using Recent Developments in Industry Concentration Measurement AgEcon
Register, D. Lane; Lambert, Dayton M.; English, Burton C.; Jensen, Kimberly L.; Menard, R. Jamey; Wilcox, Michael D..
Recent developments in firm location analysis are applied to explore the concentration patterns of firms making up the green energy sectors in 2002 and 2006. A two-step procedure is applied in this analysis. First, Guimarães, Figueiredo, and Woodward’s spatial adaption of Ellison and Glaeser’s industry concentration index are applied to estimate the degree to which firms making up the so-called green energy sectors tend to exhibit concentration. In the second stage, the spatial distribution of concentration is analyzed using a statistical framework, also suggested by Guimarães, Figueiredo, and Woodward. Preliminary results suggest that green energy subsectors exhibit significant global concentration, but localized concentration appears to be random.

Identificacion de grupos estrategicos en el sector hortofruticola espanol AgEcon
Martinez, Marian Garcia; Poole, Nigel D.; del Campo, Francisco; Lopez, David.
RESUMEN: Este artículo ofrece los resultados de un estudio intra-sectorial destinado a identificar la existencia o no de vínculos entre la estrategia empresarial, el estilo de gestión, la estructura organizativa y la actuación en el sector hortofrutícola español utilizando el análisis de grupos estratégicos como instrumento metodológico. Los grupos estratégicos se formaron a partir de dimensiones claves de la orientación estratégica de las empresas. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que los niveles de rentabilidad no difieren de forma sistemática entre los grupos estratégicos obtenidos. La heterogeneidad en la actuación está influenciada por una alineación entre la cultura empresarial y la estructura organizativa. Una tendencia hacia una mayor...

Major methodological challenges for the economic theory of the firm in the economies of Central and Eastern Europe AgEcon
Boehlke, Jerzy.
This paper presents the major methodological challenges in microeconomic theory of the firm in the economies of Central and Eastern Europe. The methodological weaknesses of the theory are not only the cause of cognitive limitation but also an important condition for an effective economic policy during the transition period.

Methodological aspects of research done in contemporary enterprises in the light of disputes between Modernists and Post-Modernists AgEcon
Boehlke, Jerzy.
The objective of this paper is to present and analyze preliminary some selected methodological consequences of the disputes held between modernists and post-modernists for the contemporary theory of the firm. There is no doubt that the subject of these disputes constitutes the main axis in the discussion on the structure and functioning of the modern enterprise. In the situation of the intense debate between modernists and post-modernists, it appears that chances of the economic theory of the firm to find explicit answers to the questions on the essence and causes of establishing the enterprise are decreasing. However, at the same time our knowledge on the causes and mechanisms of differentiating enterprises in current market economies is increasing. The...

Multi-Period Emissions Trading in the Electricity Sector - Winners and Losers AgEcon
Bode, Sven.
Emission trading has become recently more and more import in environmental regulation. In the context of controlling greenhouse gas emissions, the directive on a Europewide trading scheme for large immobile sources may be perceived as one of the most important milestones in recent years. Prior to its start, however, a number of very specific design features have to be agreed upon. In the political discussion, the question of how to allocate emission rights is considered as one of the most important issues. So far, a distribution (almost) free of charge is the option of choice. An aspect that has interestingly attracted little attention in the past is the question of how to allocate emission rights over time. This may for example be done on the basis of a...

R&D Collaboration Networks in Mixed Oligopoly AgEcon
Zikos, Vasileios.
We develop a model of endogenous network formation in order to examine the incentives for R&D collaboration in a mixed oligopoly. Our analysis reveals that the complete network, where each firm collaborates with all others, is uniquely stable, industry-profit maximizing and efficient. This result is in contrast with earlier contributions in private oligopoly where under strong market rivalry a conflict between stable and efficient networks is likely to occur. A key finding of the paper is that state-owned enterprises may be used as policy instruments in tackling the potential conflict between individual and collective incentives for R&D collaboration.

Spying in Multi-market Oligopolies AgEcon
Billand, Pascal; Bravard, Christophe; Chakrabarti, Subhadip; Sarangi, Sudipta.
We consider a multimarket framework where a set of firms compete on two interrelated oligopolistic markets. Prior to competing in these markets, firms can spy on others in order to increase the quality of their product. We characterize the equilibrium espionage networks and networks that maximize social welfare under the most interesting scenario of diseconomies of scope. We find that in some situations firms may refrain from spying even if it is costless. Moreover, even though spying leads to increased product quality, there exist situations where it is detrimental to both consumer welfare and social welfare.

TECHNOLOGY ROADMAPPING IN HUNGARY: SOME PRACTICAL OBSERVATIONS AgEcon
Pataki, Bela; Szalkai, Zsuzsanna; Biro-Szigeti, Szilvia.
Technology roadmapping (TRM) is a technique for exploring the evolution of markets, products, technologies, and their linkages. During our Hungarian TRM-applications we found important a clear business need; senior level ownership; effective communication; information and knowledge sharing; spending considerable time at the beginning; preferring less frequent but longer workshops than more frequent shorter ones; involving all related functions, active participation of senior managers; having a TRM-champion inside the company; a case-study-based training to teach TRM; and calling TRM a different name at the beginning

The economics of ethical behaviour and environmental management AgEcon
Schilizzi, Steven.
Ethics and economics have long been viewed, if not as being incompatible, at least as being at odds with each other. This has often translated in the field of environmental policy and management into radical opposition between supporters of economic performance and environmentalists. It has seemed that the ethics of economics and that of environmental preservation were themselves at odds. The discussion has opposed utilitarian and duty-based philosophies. Ultimately, the firm manager, especially when under financial pressure, must decide between keeping the firm in business and doing the right thing for the environment. This view of things is now itself at odds with reality. One needs to explain why an increasing number of firms, both big and small, are...

The Impact of Consulting Services on Small and Medium Enterprises: Evidence from a Randomized Trial in Mexico AgEcon
Bruhn, Miriam; Karlan, Dean S.; Schoar, Antoinette.
We test whether managerial human capital has a first order effect on the performance and growth of small enterprises in emerging markets. In a randomized control trial in Puebla, Mexico, we randomly assigned 150 out of 432 small and medium size enterprises to receive subsidized consulting services, while the remaining 267 enterprises served as a control group that did not receive any subsidized training. Treatment enterprises were matched with one of nine local consulting firms and met with their consultants once a week for four hours over a one year period. Results from a follow-up survey, conducted after the intervention, show that the consulting services had a large impact on the performance of the enterprises in the treatment group: monthly sales went...
